Wow the time has flown...and here I am in the hotel in Belgium ahead of surgery tomorrow morning for my band to MGB conversion!

It's going to be a long night as my own personal fear of GA has kicked in....

Everything you can cross please do so that they get the band out, that they're able to do the MGB bug more do that I wake up after :(o_O

Good luck! Hope it all goes well.

I was really worried about the GA but having just had one with my knee op I am not worried about that part anymore!

Hope you manage to get some sleep.

Well I'm alive lol

He said he may not be able to do band removal and bypass at same time, but he has. He's also given me a smaller stomach than normal and given me an extended bypass which is longer than normal too.

Am feeling just a bit of discomfort more so than anything although felt sick quite a lot, but they've been great here.

Hospital us so hot tho, no fans and the nurse opened the window only for the other lady in here to shut it as soon as the nurse left so I'm roasting. Plus she snored really loudly and decided to open curtains at 4am to watch the sun come up....what's that all about? Lol

So I've had zero sleep as with med changes at midnight and 4, obs done at 2 and 6 and bloods done at 445am it was like Piccadilly station in here lol

Still may sleep during the day, but up, dressed and feeling better :)

So glad it all went well top-Kat. As you say you can catch up on your sleep later (I caught up for 10 days!!). But it's happened and you can move forward. Congratulations!!

So glad you're fine. I had some interesting women in my bag when I was recovering and out of HDU, I was so happy to get home and be able to start recovering in my own space :) When do you travel back?

We are due out of the hospital this afternoon back to hotel for 2 nights and then fly Tuesday lunchtime. I have however on the other side got two train and a taxi journey as no-one can meet me at the airport. Thinking about booking a taxi transfer home though so shall see how I feel tomorrow :)
